Photos from Featherston's Confederacy/ TL-191


Two African-Americans, a man and a woman, dance the night away in celebration of the end of the Second Great War, circa 1944 in New York City.


The famous Leon Vaughn Band playing at a restaurant on the boardwalk at Sea Isle City circa 1944 to celebrate the end of the war. All along the broadwalk of Sea Isle City massive celebrations were held with any survivors of the Population Reduction or their American relatives getting free food and drinks for the entire duration of the festivities.


Japanese soldiers happily drink tea with their wives reminiscing about their experiences in the Second Great War and Japan’s hard fought victories.


Black Confederate immigrants, with some White Confederate dissidents, at a Shinto shrine in Tokyo circa 1940. They are refugees and asylum seekers hoping to stay in Japan to wait out the inevitable war.​

They would remain in the land of the rising sun for the entire war and would be joined by more Black Confederates from the CSA’s southwestern states, as Japanese charity organisations paid for the trip of any Black Confederate would wanted to “leave the Americas and the horrific memories associated with them behind”. Though objections by government officials and members of Japanese society did spring up, the harrowing tales of the suffering of Blacks during the Population Reduction swayed many a Japanese to welcome the new arrivals into their homeland.

God this is getting depressing. Any photos of more lighthearted scenes?


Boston Red Sox baseball Player George Herman "Babe" Ruth, seen in Fenway park, Boston, in 1930. Already a record-setter, Ruth would go on to earn the Boston Red Sox every Championship game until his retirement in 1936
While Baseball did not catch on as a national sport in comparison to Football, it was still immensely popular in the New England area, and the long-running competition between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees was almost as competitive as the ongoing rivalry between the USA and CSA. A brief media scandal occurred when it was rumored that the Red Sox manager, Harry Frazee, wanted to trade Ruth to the Yankees, but this was proven to be false.
 

A photo of the Interstate Highway system under construction in Indiana, circa 1954. This project was spurred on by President Charles W. La Follette during his second term who wanted a more efficient highway system which permitted ease of travel between states.
 

A photograph taken by a US Navy guard of three German U-Boats of 11th U-Boat Flotilla at St. Johns, Newfoundland, circa 1943. During the war, the US Navy would permit the use of the St. John's Naval Base to the Imperial German Navy U-Boats, which the first of them would arrive there in August of 1942. Over the course of the war, the flotilla would have a total of 37 boats attached to it and would operate in the North Atlantic against the Royal Navy and British shipping to their garrisons in Iceland and in Greenland and would occasionally come into contact against Confederate submarines and warships.
 


A bust of Maximillien Robespierre in Paris, France. After the defeat of the Kingdom of France in the Second Great War, the Fourth French Republic developed a deep reverence of the heroes of the French Revolution, who's positive accomplishments and reforms were emphasized in history textbooks by a France seeking to distance itself from its Actionist past through emphasizing the French Revolution, especially the progressive side of said revolution.

Wasn't it canon in TL 191 that Baseball becomes the de facto "National Sport" in the US while in the CSA Soccer became the "National Sport".

If I remember right "American Football" also becomes more or less what it was in OTL in the US while being discouraged in the CSA.

So in terms of sports the Confederacy is closer to Europe or Latin America while in the US it's more or less what it was OTL.
 
At the start of the great war football was different as the union allowed forward passing and tyr Confederates only allowed laterals. From what I remember by the 1930s the two had merged along the union version of the game

if they were looking to celebrate progressive ideas and leave the Actionist dictatorship behind, i doubt they'd be celebrating Robespierre....
 
So is that American football or soccer?
American Football; Soccer is not mentioned in the TL191 series that I remember. I'm sure its there but not mentioned. At the Start of the Great War Confederate Football appears to be similar to Ruby ie only laterals no forward passing while Union Football is similar the OTL game. Both have 11 man teams and a 100 yard field with Field goal post at the front of the inzone and Kick off's, Field goals, extra point, (I'm assuming that Drop Kicks are used for Extra Points as they were predominant during the early years of Football OTL) and punts are OTL as Chester Martin describes in the the American Empire Series during the 1920's that second trilogy also states that the Union version take over in the CSA Post Great War. Football is the American Pastime not baseball which is limited to New England.

Yeah, Robespierre would not be that high on the list.

Post-War France would focus on say Jean-Paul Marat, or Emmanuel Joseph Sieyes.
 
The Washington-America Treaty Organization.

Flag of the Washington-America Treaty Organization (abbreviation: WATO.) This flag would comprise of the compass rose in the center on top of green, which would symbolize the Americas, and the blue would symbolize the seas and oceans around the Americas.

The Washington-America Treaty Organization would be formed on April 4th, 1949, which it's spiritual predecessor, the Union-Caribbean Joint Defense Initiative, was first formed in 1938 between the United States, Haiti, and Jamaica for a potential war against Featherston's Confederacy. Following the Second Great War, this alliance would be reformed as the Treaty of Mutual Alliance and Assistance in 1945, which would see the addition of Texas and Quebec into the Alliance. Throughout the late 1940s, talks of a new alliance between the various nations in North and Central America would result in the signature of the Washington-America Treaty on April 4th, 1949 by the member states of the Treaty of Mutual Alliance and Assistance along with the addition of the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and El Salvador, thus forming the WATO alliance. In 1951, the organization's first maneuvers, Exercise Mainbrace, would be conducted in Colorado with the combined air and land forces from Texas, the US, Mexico, Quebec, and Haiti. That same year, both Chile and Alaska would join the alliance as both countries have felt that the Japanese have been encroaching near them. In 1952, WATO's headquarters would be set up in the city of Indianapolis, Indiana and it's first supreme commander would be General Mark W. Clark. Throughout the Frozen Conflict and after, the organization would expand it's influence across the Americas under the cause of "Preserving Liberty and Democracy in the Americas."
